New Delhi, Feb 17: Delhi BJP leader Kapil Mishra on Monday linked the December 15 violence at Jamia University to the shocking 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. He further said that if Kasab hid in a library, he would called innocent.

अगर उस दिन कसाब भागकर गन समेत लाइब्रेरी में घुस जाता तो इनोसेंट कहलाता ...— Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishra_IND) February 17, 2020
This comment by the BJP leader comes after the Jamia Millia Islamia University released CCTV footage that revealed Delhi Police, armed with batons and dressed in riot gear, entered the university's library and began thrashing students who were preparing for their upcoming exam.
In a video, that was released by the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC), allegedly shows several police personnel entering the Old Reading Hall and thrashing students with batons. The video further revealed that the police personnel were hiding their face with handkerchiefs.
However, the viral video evoked strong reactions from the Opposition and the authorities of Jamia University.
Reacting to this, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had said that if no action is taken even after the video, then the government's intentions will stand exposed.
